    Looking to upgrade my PC performance wise for BeamNG Drive and other games that I play so was hoping for some suggestions to point me in the right direction since I'm not extremely CPU savvy. Currently I can have about 8 AI cars racing around Hirochi Raceway at a manageable 40-60 FPS with medium graphic settings and I'm looking to at least double the amount of AI cars I can have running at the same time. I read up somewhere that the more cores a CPU processor has, the more powerful the performance will be so any recommendations for a better CPU or graphics card would be greatly appreciated! :D

    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7600K CPU @ 3.80GHz 3.79 GHz
    16 GB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
    ASUS ROG Strix Z270E Gaming
    Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB

    GPU: RTX 3060-Ti (If you can find one).
    CPU: I9-7900X.

    Well, if you want better performance you'll need more cores.

    If you can, I would suggest building a new computer with a AMD processor instead.

    Oof, don't know if I can afford to build a whole new CPU at this time.

    You could always buy the components when you can afford them, and then sell your old PC when you have the new one.
